The Bird Cage in Noosa

The Bird Cage

Design: Tim Ditchfield Architects

Location: Noosa, Queensland, Australia

The Bird Cage Noosa

A slice of land looking north across the Noosa River to a tree-lined beach on the far shore sets the program for a building which levers u-shaped planning to foster appreciation for the estuary’s activity.

The built form of The Bird Cage pivots around a neat square of manicured lawn which motivates the owners and their guests to forgo footwear and downshift to match pace with life on the river. Overhead, twin sleeping wings project out to meet the river on concrete columns.

Enclosing screens to the bedrooms provide filtered views and control privacy, breezes and sunlight. At the pull of a handle the screens unlock and bifold neatly to allow full enjoyment of the wide estuary view and cooling north easterlies.

At ground level, the internal living and entertaining area encompass a large double-height volume which opens to the full width of the site. Deep suspended screening softens light as it enters, negating the need for further sun control.

What is the conceptual framework of the project?
A slice of land looking north across the Noosa River to a tree-lined peninsula on the far shore sets the program for a building which levers u-shaped planning to foster appreciation for the estuary’s activity.

What is the relationship of the built form to the context of the project?
The street façade is deliberately bold to the busy street giving a powerful street presence. Upon approach the material palette begins to soften with natural elements and continues to open up and soften as you journey through the building. Once on the river side, the courtyard, filled with lawn, stonework and pandani trees, invites you to soak in the river front atmosphere in this oasis.
